What Are Nukes
Nuke is an informal name for nuclear weapon. Nuclear weapons are explosive devices formed from nuclear reactions either by fission, fusion or a combination of both.
A tremendous amount of energy is released in the course of this reaction resulting to a strong destructive force.
The most common isotopes used for this nuclear reactions are Plutonium-239 and Uranium-235.
How Dangerous Are Nukes
Nukes been the dangerous weapons on earth is an under statement. Nukes can annihilate an entire city within seconds and can kill even the unborn generation, that is if there happens to be survivors from a nuclear attack.
The survivors mostly suffer from gene mutation, leading to genetic diseases and cancer. The soil, plants and lower animals become unfit because of absorption of nuclear radiations which can be retained for many years.
How Expensive Are Nukes
Nukes are pretty expensive to acquire and refurbish. The total cost for a submarine-based nuclear warhead is around $200 million. W80 warhead which is deployed on air-launched cruise missles and delivered by B52 cost around $1million each.
How Did Pakistan Acquired Nukes
Pakistan is one among the nine states of the world to possess nukes, a weapon program they started in January 1972 under Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto famously said in 1965, ”if India build bombs, we will eat grass or leaves, even go hungry, but we will get one of our own.”
”if India build bombs, we will eat grass or leaves, even go hungry, but we will get one of our own.”
There was a clandestine effort through a clandestine equipment-acquisition program designed to do an end run on nonproliferation efforts.
European countries also assisted the Pakistan’s weapon program, through a metallurgist called A.Q. Khan, working in the West, who returned to his home country.
Why Should The 7Th Nukees Of The World Still In Need Of Foreign Aid
This tweet from the famous Imam of peace-Imam Mohamad Tawhidi, would sure give us an insight to the topic of discuss.
Why do we continue to give Pakistan foreign aid when they have nukes? Since when did countries with nukes need foreign aid? If you have enough money to research/build nukes and point them towards your enemies, you sure can afford better education and medical equipment. Nonsense.— Imam Mohamad Tawhidi (@Imamofpeace) January 21, 2019
